Quickpen allows you to capture handwriting and drawings from your touchscreen to graphic files. It is useful during lectures and presentations, as it is not limited to text. Quickpen's focus is on simplicity and reliability. Right after starting it you can always immediately start writing. There is no button that could lead to an accidential deletion of data. See github for the code.
